Cruise towards sunset | Gdańsk
An intimate, 12-seater replica of a historical boat “galar” will take you on a sunset cruise in Gdańsk. A small number of passengers means a lot of freedom and comfort for the participants of the journey, and the height of our vessel allows you to reach places to which taller ships cannot access. Each passenger is provided with a warm blanket at the entrance, so that they can wrap themselves in it while admiring the sunset on the Motława River. The whole experience is accompanied by beautiful and unique views of Gdańsk and sea stories told by our guide in two languages (English and Polish).
Our captain will take you on a sunset cruise around Gdańsk that you won’t forget for the rest of your life! Admire this wonderful city from the water’s perspective – a perspective from which you can see what is usually inaccessible to the human eye. You will learn about the rich history of Gdańsk, its monuments and see how it developed over the years. Observe the architecture of the buildings and Gdańsk’s harbor cranes while sailing aboard a replica of Polish riverboat galar. Vessels of this type were used mainly in the 18th century as one of the main means of wood transport. Sounds interesting? Become a passenger of this extraordinary boat and add a pinch of magic to your holiday memories!
Sunset boat cruise from the historical site
Start your sunset boat cruise from our marina located at the Gdańsk Shipyard, which in the past was a workplace for almost 18,000 people and remained closed to visitors for more than 170 years. There are few places with such an interesting history. The Gdańsk Shipyard was established after 1945, on the site of the former German dockyards. This is where NSZZ “Solidarność” – a trade union founded in 1980, which led to the fall of communism in Poland – originated. Today, the Gdańsk Shipyard is considered the cradle of Polish freedom, and in 2014 it received the European Heritage Label.
Admire the sunset in Gdansk aboard galar boat
Your adventure begins as soon as you board the boat. Sit back, wrap yourself in a blanket and listen to the fascinating stories told by our guide. Cruise the Motława River through the center of the Old Town. Learn a lot of interesting informations and see the greatest tourist’ attractions offered by Gdańsk: the grounds of the Teutonic Castle, the Long Embankment with the water gates leading to the city, the famous wooden Crane from the 15th century and charming old tenement houses in a contemporary environment. Continue your journey and admire the remaining monuments and the new buildings of Ołowianka Island and Granary Island. All this in the glow of the setting sun.
The galar sunset cruise is also a great opportunity to take a look at the port’s specialist boats and cranes, as well as to see the quay of the Port of Gdańsk up close. This is a real treat for shipbuilding enthusiasts, who can deepen their knowledge in this way. It is worth taking your other half on a cruise: sunset, Gdańsk, you two under a warm blanket. Isn’t it a super romantic date idea? Guarantee your significant other a trip that she or he will not forget for the rest of their life!
Finish your sunset cruise in Gdańsk at the same place where it started. If you don’t want to disembark near the shipyard, you can also ask the captain about the possibility of mooring a bit closer to the Old Town – in exchange for a sincere smile, he will certainly accept your proposal.
Relax, unwind and admire the beautiful sunset against the background of the Gdansk panorama, straight from a replica of the famous galar boat. Give yourself and your loved ones a unique experience – go on a climatic cruise on the Motława River, which you will certainly not forget.
